Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, from the amounts received from the appropriation to the Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid program and received from amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account, each municipality shall be required to distribute to each fire district within its boundaries the amount received by the fire district from the Supplementary Aid for Fire Services program pursuant to the provisions of the fiscal year 1995 annual appropriations act, P.L.1994, c.67, less an amount proportional to reductions in the combined total amount received by the municipality from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid and from the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” since fiscal year 2008.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid shall be distributed in the same amounts, and to the same municipalities that received funding pursuant to the previous fiscal year’s annual appropriations act; provided further, however, that from the amount hereinabove appropriated there are transferred to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account such amounts as were determined for fiscal year 2003, fiscal year 2006, fiscal year 2007, fiscal year 2008, fiscal year 2009, fiscal year 2010, fiscal year 2012, fiscal year 2013, fiscal year 2014, fiscal year 2015, fiscal year 2016, and fiscal year 2018 pursuant to subsection e. of section 2 of P.L.1997, c.167 (C.52:27D-439), as amended by P.L.1999, c.168; and except that the amount of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid received by a municipality shall be increased by such amounts of Transitional Aid to Localities deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services in the previous fiscal year.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government Services shall take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that proportional amounts of the Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid and the amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account appropriated to offset losses from business personal property tax that would have otherwise been used for the support of public schools will be used to reduce the school property tax levy for those affected school districts with the remaining State Aid used as municipal property tax relief. The chief financial officer of the municipality shall pay to the school districts such amounts as may be due by December 31.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the release of the total annual amount due for the current fiscal year from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to municipalities is subject to the following condition: the municipality shall submit to the Director of the Division of Local Government Services a report describing the municipality’s compliance with the “Best Practices Inventory” established by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services and shall receive at least a minimum score on such inventory as determined by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services; provided, however, that the director may take into account the particular circumstances of a municipality. In preparing the Best Practices Inventory, the director shall identify best municipal practices in the areas of general administration, fiscal management, and operational activities, as well as the particular circumstances of a municipality, in determining the minimum score acceptable for the release of the total annual amount due for the current fiscal year.

The Director of the Division of Local Government Services may permit any municipality that received Regional Efficiency Aid Program funds pursuant to the annual appropriations act for fiscal year 2010, P.L.2009, c.68, to use a portion of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to provide “Regional Efficiency Aid Program” benefits pursuant to P.L.1999, c.61 (C.54:4-8.76 et seq.).

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidation Implementation shall be allocated to provide reimbursement to local government units that consolidate pursuant to any law, including but not limited to P.L.2007, c.63 (C.40A:65-1 et seq.) and P.L.2009, c. 118 (C.54:1-86 et seq.), or to a municipality that is wholly annexed by another municipality pursuant to N.J.S.40A:7-1 et seq., for non-recurring costs that the Director of the Division of Local Government Services, or in the case of a school district consolidation the Commissioner of Education, determines to be necessary to implement such consolidation or annexation, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting; provided, however, that in addition to the amounts hereinabove appropriated, there are appropriated such additional amounts as are determined to be necessary for reimbursement of non-recurring costs associated with local government unit consolidations, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities, an amount may be allocated by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services to provide short-term financial assistance to a local government unit that is determined by the director to be experiencing financial distress caused by the destruction or loss of a major local business ratable. For purposes of this paragraph, a “major local business ratable” means one or more related parcels of property owned by a single business entity, classified as commercial or industrial, which comprised the largest assessed valuation of any one or more line items of taxable property in a municipality, or generated an annual PILOT payment in excess of 10% of the total municipal levy, or is otherwise determined by the director to be of such significance to a municipality that its destruction or loss has resulted in financial distress; provided, however, that notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government Services may direct that part of any such allocation be paid to an affected school district or county, or to both, in the same manner as if the award of Transitional Aid were raised as revenue from the municipal tax levy; and provided further that a local government unit determined to be experiencing financial distress because of the loss or destruction of a major local business ratable shall not be required to be subject to any additional conditions, requirements, orders, or other operational efficiency or oversight measures authorized pursuant to P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D-118.42a), except as determined to be appropriate by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities is subject to the following condition: notwithstanding the provisions of R.S.43:21-14, or any other law or regulation to the contrary, the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development, in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is authorized to enter into individualized payment plan agreements with municipalities that receive Transitional Aid for the reimbursement of unemployment benefits paid to former employees of such municipal government units, at reasonable interest rates based on current market conditions, and on such other terms and conditions as may be determined to be appropriate by the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development. Any municipality that enters into an individualized payment plan agreement pursuant to this section shall be required to expend all funds budgeted for this activity remaining as of the last day of its budget year for the repayment of outstanding obligations under the plan.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities shall be allocated to provide short-term financial assistance where needed to help a municipality that is in serious fiscal distress meet immediate budgetary needs and regain financial stability. A municipality shall be deemed to be eligible for transitional aid if it is identified by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services as experiencing serious fiscal distress where the director determines that, despite local officials having implemented substantive cost reduction strategies, there continue to exist conditions of serious fiscal distress, which may include but shall not be limited to: substantial structural or accumulated deficits; ongoing reliance on non-recurring revenues; limited ability to raise supplemental non-property tax revenues; extraordinary demands for public safety appropriations; and other factors indicating a constrained ability to raise sufficient revenues to meet budgetary requirements that substantially jeopardizes the fiscal integrity of the municipality. Municipalities seeking transitional aid shall file an application on a form prescribed by the director, which application, among other things, shall set forth the minimum criteria that must be met in order for an application to be considered by the director for a determination of eligibility. The director shall determine whether a municipality which files an application meeting such minimum criteria is in serious fiscal distress, and, if so, what amount of transitional aid should be provided to address the municipality’s serious fiscal distress. The transitional aid shall be provided to the municipality subject to the provisions of subsection a. of section 1 of P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D-118.42a); provided, however, that an amount of Transitional Aid to Localities as determined by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services for a municipality may be deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid in an amount not in excess of the amount of Transitional Aid to Localities such municipality received in the previous fiscal year and shall not reduce the amount of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid such municipality shall receive for the current fiscal year. Provided, however, if the Director of the Division of Local Government Services deems an amount of Transitional Aid to Localities for a municipality as constituting Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid pursuant to this provision, that municipality is not relieved from compliance with the requirements for transitional aid.

Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection d. of section 29 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-29) or subsection d. of section 30 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-30), or any law or regulation to the contrary, all payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by the State and non-profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be retained by the municipality and not apportioned in the same manner as the general tax rate of the municipality.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by the State and non-profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be provided only to municipalities whose payments received in fiscal year 2010 exceeded $5,000 and shall be provided at two-thirds of the payment amount provided in fiscal year 2010.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, any qualifying municipality, as defined in section 1 of P.L.1978, c.14 (C.52:27D-178) for the previous fiscal year, shall continue to be a qualifying municipality thereunder during the current fiscal year.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, whenever funds appropriated as State Aid and payable to any municipality, which municipality requests and receives the approval of the Local Finance Board, such funds may be pledged as a guarantee for payment of principal and interest on any bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to section 11 of P.L.2003, c.15 (C.40A:2-8.1) and any tax anticipation notes issued pursuant to N.J.S.40A:4-64 by such municipality. Such funds, if so pledged, shall be made available by the State Treasurer upon receipt of a written notification by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services that the municipality does not have sufficient funds available for prompt payment of principal and interest on such notes, and shall be paid by the State Treasurer directly to the holders of such notes at such time and in such amounts as specified by the director, notwithstanding that payment of such funds does not coincide with any date for payment otherwise fixed by law.

The State Treasurer, in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is empowered to direct the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting to transfer appropriations from any State department to any other State department as may be necessary to provide a loan for a term not to exceed 180 days to a local government unit faced with a fiscal crisis, including but not limited to a potential default on tax anticipation notes and on such other terms and conditions as may be required by the commissioner.

Notwithstanding the provisions of N.J.S.40A:4-39 or any other law or regulation to the contrary, a county that assumes responsibility for the provision of local police services in one or more municipalities utilizing a new or expanded county police force may display the anticipated revenues and appropriations associated with such county police force in its annual budget by annexing to that budget a statement describing the sources and amounts of anticipated dedicated revenues and appropriating those dedicated amounts for the purposes of the county police force.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for the County Prosecutor Funding Initiative Pilot Program shall be distributed as follows: Camden County, $895,000; Essex County, $1,811,000; Hudson County, $802,500; and Mercer County, $491,500.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Equalization Aid, an amount equal to the total earnings of investments of the Fund for the Support of Free Public Schools first shall be charged to such fund.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, a district’s 2017-2018 allocation of the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Equalization Aid shall be determined based on the relationship between the district’s modified proposed aid amount and uncapped aid amount. In the case of a district in which the funding percentage exceeds 100 percent, the district’s allocation of the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Equalization Aid shall be as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the Commissioner of Education. In the case of a district in which the funding percentage is less than 100 percent, the district’s allocation of the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Equalization Aid shall be as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner plus any additional aid awarded pursuant to this provision. In the case of a district in which the funding percentage is no greater than 70 percent, the commissioner shall allocate additional aid to the district in an amount equal to 11.71 percent of the district’s modified underfunding amount. In the case of a district in which the funding percentage is greater than 70 percent, but less than 100 percent, the commissioner shall allocate additional aid to the district in an amount equal to 25.54 percent of the district’s modified underfunding amount. The additional funding shall first be used to increase a school district’s allocation of Equalization Aid, up to the amount calculated pursuant to section 10 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-52), provided that the district’s Equalization Aid as calculated pursuant to that section is greater than the amount of Equalization Aid included in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner. As used in this provision: “total proposed aid amount” means the sum of Equalization Aid, Adjustment Aid, Security Aid, Special Education Categorical Aid, School Choice Aid, Educational Adequacy Aid, Supplemental Enrollment Growth Aid, Transportation Aid, Under Adequacy Aid, PARCC Readiness, Per Pupil Growth Aid, Professional Learning Community Aid, and Host District Support Aid as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner; “modified proposed aid amount” means the total proposed aid amount minus the amount of School Choice Aid and Educational Adequacy Aid as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner; “uncapped aid amount” means the sum of Equalization Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 10 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-52), Special Education Categorical Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 13 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-55), Security Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 14 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-56), and Transportation Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 15 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-57); “funding percentage” means a district’s modified proposed aid amount divided by the uncapped aid amount; and “modified underfunding amount” means 1 minus the district’s funding percentage multiplied by the difference between the district’s uncapped aid amount and modified proposed aid amount.

Of the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Nonpublic School Aid, such amounts as determined by the Commissioner of Education may be transferred between such accounts to address changes in enrollments and services, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Receipts from nonpublic schools handicapped and auxiliary recoveries are appropriated for the payment of additional aid in accordance with section 17 of P.L.1977, c.192 (C.18A:46A-14) and section 14 of P.L.1977, c.193 (C.18A:46-19.8), subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 14 of P.L.1977, c.193 (C.18A:46-19.8), for the purpose of computing Nonpublic Handicapped Aid for pupils requiring the following services, the per pupil amounts for the 2017-2018 school year shall be: $1,326.17 for an initial evaluation or reevaluation for examination and classification; $380 for an annual review for examination and classification; $930 for speech correction; and $826 for supplementary instruction services, provided, however, that the Commissioner of Education may adjust the per pupil amounts based upon the nonpublic pupil population and the need for services.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 9 of P.L.1977, c.192 (C.18A:46A-9), the per pupil amount for compensatory education for the 2017-2018 school year for the purposes of computing Nonpublic Auxiliary Services Aid shall equal $995.33 and the per pupil amount for providing the equivalent service to children of limited English-speaking ability shall be $1,015, provided, however, that the Commissioner of Education may adjust the per pupil amounts based upon the nonpublic pupil population and the need for services.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 9 of P.L.1991, c.226 (C.18A:40-31), the amount hereinabove appropriated for Nonpublic Nursing Services Aid shall be made available to local school districts based upon the number of pupils enrolled in each nonpublic school on the last day prior to October 16, 2016.

Items purchased for the use of nonpublic school students with Nonpublic Technology Initiative funds in previous budget cycles shall remain the property of the local education agency; provided, however, that they shall remain on permanent loan for the use of nonpublic school students for the balance of the technologies’ useful life.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, Nonpublic Technology Initiative Aid shall be paid to school districts and allocated for nonpublic school pupils at the rate of $37 per pupil in a manner that is consistent with the provisions of the federal and State constitutions.

From the amount hereinabove appropriated for Nonpublic Security Aid, the Commissioner of Education shall provide State aid to each school district in an amount equal to $75 multiplied by the number of nonpublic school students within the district identified by the district on or before November 5 for security services, equipment, or technology to ensure a safe and secure school environment for nonpublic school students.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, following notification to the Joint Budget Oversight Committee there are appropriated to the Emergency Fund account such additional amounts as may be required to fund approved applications for emergency aid following district needs assessments conducted by the Department of Education, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting. The Commissioner of Education may use an amount appropriated to the Emergency Fund to provide a loan to a school district that is experiencing fiscal distress as a result of receiving less State school aid in the 2017-2018 school year than the amount received in the prior school year. The commissioner shall determine the repayment terms including the amount of interest, if any, that will be assessed.

Such amounts received in the “School District Deficit Relief Account,” established pursuant to section 5 of P.L.2006, c.15 (C.18A:7A-58), including loan repayments, are appropriated, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Notwithstanding the provisions of P.L.1999, c.12 (C.54A:9-25.12 et seq.), there is appropriated from the Drug Abuse Education Fund, the amount of $50,000, to be used for the NJSIAA Steroid Testing program.

Any reduction in a district’s allocation of Adjustment Aid shall not include any amount classified as Additional Adjustment Aid in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner. In the case of a county vocational district in which the funding percentage is greater than 100 percent, the district’s allocation of the amounts hereinabove appropriated for Equalization Aid, Security Aid, Special Education Categorical Aid, Transportation Aid, and Adjustment Aid shall be as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner.

In the case of a district in which the funding percentage is greater than 70 percent, but less than 100 percent, the commissioner shall allocate additional aid to the district in an amount equal to 25.54 percent of the district’s modified underfunding amount. The additional funding shall first be used to increase a school district’s allocation of Equalization Aid, up to the amount calculated pursuant to section 10 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-52), provided that the district’s Equalization Aid as calculated pursuant to that section is greater than the amount of Equalization Aid included in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner.

As used in this provision: “total proposed aid amount” means the sum of Equalization Aid, Adjustment Aid, Security Aid, Special Education Categorical Aid, School Choice Aid, Educational Adequacy Aid, Supplemental Enrollment Growth Aid, Transportation Aid, Under Adequacy Aid, PARCC Readiness, Per Pupil Growth Aid, Professional Learning Community Aid, and Host District Support Aid as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner; “modified proposed aid amount” means the total proposed aid amount minus the amount of School Choice Aid and Educational Adequacy Aid as set forth in the March 2017 State Aid notice issued by the commissioner; “uncapped aid amount” means the sum of Equalization Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 10 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-52), Special Education Categorical Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 13 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-55), Security Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 14 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-56), and Transportation Aid, as calculated pursuant to section 15 of P.L.2007, c.260 (C.18A:7F-57); “funding percentage” means a district’s modified proposed aid amount divided by the uncapped aid amount; and “modified underfunding amount” means 1 minus the district’s funding percentage multiplied by the difference between the district’s uncapped aid amount and modified proposed aid amount.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 4 of P.L.1997, c.72 (C.26:2H-18.58g), section 17 of P.L.2000, c.72 (C.18A:7G-17), or any law or regulation to the contrary, of the amount hereinabove appropriated to the School Construction and Renovation Fund such amounts as the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting may determine first shall be charged to the Property Tax Relief Fund.
